About Lal Salaam
The film was previously scheduled to release during the Pongal festival in January. Production house Lyca Productions had recently shared the new release date. Presented by A Subaskaran, the film has music by AR Rahman. Aishwarya Rajinikanth directed Lal Salaam after an eight-year break.
Lal Salaam stars Vishnu Vishal and Vikranth in lead roles, who are seen as rivals since they were kids. The first half of Lal Salaam revolves around their village, its people and the relationship between Hindus and Muslims there. It also sets up the rivalry between Vishnu’s Thiru and Vikranth’s Shamsu. In the film, Rajinikanth plays the role of Moideen Bhai.
Lal Salaam movie review
An excerpt from Lal Salaam’s Hindustan Times review read, “It is interesting to see Rajinikanth play Moideen bhai, a Muslim leader, on screen. Some of the dialogues given to him clearly exhibit his personal beliefs and are quite meaningful in today’s times. They are goosebumps-inducing moments, in fact. In one scene, for instance, Moideen bhai says, ‘India is for Indians and I am an Indian Muslim. I was born here and I will die here. This is my home. We should not talk about caste or religion but humanity, and humanity is above all. Jai Hind’. Humanity above all is an aspect the Superstar has spoken about in real life as well.”
